Thomas Voeckler is the first attacker and Thomas De Gendt, Timo Roosen and Maxime Bouet join him. Reto Hollenstein bridges the gap and they race to a lead of almost 3 minutes before the pack takes control.
On a climb with 40 kms to go De Gendt and Voeckler are the last men standing, while the Flemish solo-expert leaves the Frenchman behind with 31 kms remaining when his lead is down to 1’30”.
De Gendt is brought back with 12 kms left before Lammertink attacks with Caruso on his wheel, while Arndt and Perichon chase them down. When they are almost reeled in Lammertink attacks again, but he is swept up as the peloton powers to the steep drag up to the finish line.
Naesen is the first to attack before Gilbert and then Van Avermaet move into the lead. Matthews sits on the wheel of the Olympic Champion – who won two years ago on the same arrival – and comes around him with hundred metres left to climb to victory. A group with Froome and Rigoberto Uran finishes only 1 second behind them, while Bardet is 5 seconds in arrears.
And the yellow jersey? Aru is too far back in the field at the foot of the climb and loses almost half a minute, thus handing back the maillot jaune to Chris Froome.
